Nursing School Tips: NRSNG + Picmonic = Efficient Studying


NRSNG Academy and Picmonic are two resources that students are using to cut through the fluff and decrease the hours of studying in order to improve their grades and master the NCLEX®.

Nursing school is hard; every nursing student knows this fact. 
From professors telling you to memorize textbooks, to being overwhelmed with too much to study and not enough hours in the day to get it all done.

NRSNG and Picmonic both seek to individualize our teaching delivery methods in order to ensure that the student can have the greatest success in nursing school and the NCLEX®.

NRSNG’s Core Content Mastery Method

NRSNG Academy
NRSNG has developed a method of teaching nursing students that called the Core Content Mastery Method. Their goal with this method is to deliver via
NRSNG Academy exactly the information they need to master nursing topics. This method is based upon four core tenets:

  1. Filet Mignon
  2. Why Behind the What
  3. Linchpins
  4. Learner-Centered Talkabouts

The FILET MIGNON means they give students the most important information, not the buffet of all information.

The WHY BEHIND THE WHAT means that understanding the science behind the art is imperative to be a competent, effective healthcare professional, and it helps with retention.  

LINCHPINS means they provide that one piece of information that holds everything together, and making sure to draw connections between the content and connections to the real world.

NRSNG Learner Centered TalkaboutsThe LEARNER-CENTERED TALKABOUTS means NRSNG talks to the learner like they’re in the room. It’s a chat, a casual conversation. It’s about them getting you what you need.

By focusing on these four tenets of the Core Content Mastery Method NRSNG is able to help nursing students reduce study time, avoid content overload, and improve retention. All combined this translates into successful students who are better prepared healthcare professionals.

All nursing students should have a chance to try the Core Content Mastery Method on NRSNG Academy. You can sign-up for your $1 three day trial by clicking HERE.
